Numero che non mi è dispiaciuto per niente! :nono:
Mi è piaciuta tutta la parte sulla "forza della volontà" e tutto il casino che ha combinato Harvey
Spiacente, ma non sei autorizzato a visualizzare il contenuto degli spoiler.

Però come al solito, non riconosco Bats e la backup non mi ha detto niente...

Batman and Two-Face's crazy cross-country road trip becomes that much more chaotic in this new issue. Scott Snyder takes the opportunity to dig deeper into his philosophy on the relationship between Harvey Dent and Two-Face and how his own duality reflects that of Gotham City. Needless to say, a story that already felt plenty timely is only growing more so in light of recent political developments. But this issue also has plenty of brutal, hard-hitting action to offer as Batman's physical gauntlet grows more harrowing and The Beast re-enters the fray. Romita impresses the most when it comes to depicting Batman's impaired vision and the lengths the Dark Knight goes to to overcome his foes. Dean White's lush, sentimental colors are also a huge draw. This issue also wraps up the Duke Thomas-centric backup story in strong fashion, proving all the more how much this new sidekick has to offer the Batman family. -Jesse

Final Score:

8.7/10

'Rama Rating: 9 out of 10

The thing about All-Star Batman is that since it's seemingly outside of DC's core "Rebirth" story, Scott Snyder and his absolutely killer art team can go as grounded or as Bat-bananas as they want. In this Two-Face story "My Own Worst Enemy," plays up the duality of both Bruce Wayne and Harvey Dent and the figures they'd later become, but it's the greater entity of Gotham City that unites them in their early struggles.

Snyder's Batman run is considered one of greatest of all time, owing not just to Batman and his arch-foes, but Snyder's deeper themes about how Gotham can either build you or break you. In this case, we see that Harvey and Bruce, much like in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight are really two sides of the same coin.

Having explored origins of his other great rogues, Snyder concentrates on Two-Face here, having a young Harvey and Bruce share a similar upbringing within the confines of a rebuilt Arkham Asylum that is used a housing unit for troubled youths. While it might seem a bit coincidental at face value, it goes back to the idea that Gotham has a hold on its citizens and decides which ones to raise up and which ones to tear down. Unlike Snyder's earlier attempts such as his retelling of Mr. Freeze's origin, Bruce's relationship with Harvey seems organic here and doesn't feel like it deviates too much from what most readers consider canonical. It's a deeper look inside the young boys who would later be defined by their adult lives.

It does get a bit extreme, though. We've seen Snyder take Batman to his absolute limit and bring him down to our paltry human levels, but he's starting to take a page out of Grant Morrison's book where he's turning Bruce into a borderline demigod. It works here, as he trudged through not only Harvey's scheming, but the Court of Owls as well as a pile-on by the KGBeast. Batman may be tough as nails, but Snyder ramps up the bad guys in this hard-hitting gauntlet that Batman finds himself endlessly running through.

The three-man tag-team of Romita, Miki, and White essentially reinvents what we think of when we collectively think of a "standard" Batman title. Gone is neon-noir palette of FCO and replaced with a sharper scheme that's equal parts Batman '66 and Batman: The Animated Series, with the reds and greens cranked up to 11. Having worked with Romita in the past, White has a strong grasp on the linework that makes everybody look good in the process. From the opening scene with Two-Face pouring acid on Batman's face to all the crazy kinetic action going on, it all looks like the Batman action movie we deserve. It does feel claustrophobic on some pages, but the detail that Romita and Miki are able to extract more than makes up for it.

Following up such an explosive team is Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire pulling out all of their stops to not just make you invested in the future career of Duke Thomas as the newest addition to the Bat-family, but to also show how a life behind the mask is ill-fitted for the weak-willed. Although he doesn't share the lineage of the Robins, he's on his way to being one of the best aides that Batman needs for this generation. The showdown between the newly-named Lark and the twisted Zsasz ends more of a candle being snuffed than the fireworks I had expected, but it's still effective at fleshing out his character.

All-Star Batman continues to deliver a reestablishment of the mythology of this almost century-old character with Snyder evolving him, but keeping his roots more grounded this time around. The shock value of Batman being tortured has been something that Snyder keeps going back to, with each time getting more and more out there. While that concept has started to show its age, it's the strength that Snyder gives to these characters even when their scar tissue reminds us that not all wounds heal the same.
